Welcome to the French Grand Prix at the Circuit Nevers Magny-Cours, round 10 of the 2004 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Ambient temperature is critical to grip here because of the unusually smooth track surface. The temperature today is due to reach a high of 23 degrees Celsius and it will be cloudy but warm.

That’s pretty much the message for the whole weekend, with the temperature remaining constant until Sunday when it is forecast to reach 24 degrees. There is a chance of scattered showers in the area on raceday, however.
